The global development job market remains as competitive as ever with shifts in funding and trends such as localization impacting the opportunities available for job seekers and professionals. To truly understand the employment landscape for the year ahead, Devex surveyed over 120 global development recruiters representing 28 countries and a range of organizations. Their predictions for hiring in 2017 included a demand for expertise in health and monitoring and evaluation, higher salaries for local hires, and a greater interest in professionals from nontraditional backgrounds.
In this exclusive Devex webinar, senior director and editor Kate Warren, our in-house expert on careers and recruiting, discusses how these hiring trends will impact global development professionals and their careers in the year ahead.
Whether you are just starting out in global development and want to know which regions offer the greatest job opportunities or which languages will be most useful, or if you are considering a master’s degree to further your career, Warren’s analysis of the hiring trends in 2017 can help you understand what global development employers are looking for and how to guide your job search strategy.
